What do you guys think?

I'm A+ certified with remote IT minor and have my certification from a technical school. I also am going to school to get my associates in programming and then my bachelors in Information Systems.
I do remote IT support part time and school full time and I want to be a software analyst.

I have no surcharge able traffic tickets or accidents I have been driving for about 6 years. When I'm done with homework and work I smoke some weed before I go to bed. I also vote. This ( http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/9652/lastscantb.jpg ) guy thinks’ I "create a potential hazard" so
what do you people think? If I drive a personal amount of marijuana home sober for responsible use I don't think I should be committing a fineable and surcharge able crime. What do you guys think?

I think your first paragraph is completely irrelevant.

I think sober driving with marijuana in your car creates no more risk than if you didn't have it. Unless of course the transporation of the marijuana is the purpose of your trip in which case increased risk arises due to your being on the road. Other than that, transporting marijuana could actually reduce risk to yourself and those around you by encouraging you to drive more carefully and therefore less likely to get into a collision or pulled over for some other violation.

That's what I think.

Also, if you're only transporting marijuana and not driving impaired, you shouldn't have anything to worry about if you're smart about it. Keep it hidden in the car, not on your person. Don't put it in your glovebox or some other place where it might inadvertently be seen. And most importantly, KNOW YOUR 4th AMENDMENT RIGHTS AND HOW TO STAND UP FOR THEM.

well

I was just trying to establish I think I am a somewhat productive member of society and not a criminal.

I understand that part. But by definition if you break laws you ARE a criminal. We are all criminals. That stands regardless of whether we are productive or not. The laws are meant to be blind to such factors, with common exceptions made for politicians, movie stars, and professional athletes.

On the plantation, the criminal is the runaway with a book, and the productive member of society just keeps singing. Which would you rather be?

This has been another extreme analogy to make a point about the relative nature of "crime" brought to you by The Rev
